Inspiring through art ... This is the challenge that everyone is invited to take up by joining many artists in an international artistic fundraising campaign.
Fafi & friends
Following the recent and tragic events happening in Afghanistan, international graffiti-artist Fafi teamed up with art-fundraising platform The Hope Gallery to collect funds with the help of Fafi’s artist friends.
Skrillex, Joseph Mount (Metronomy), Pedro Winter (Ed Banger), Ludivine Sagnier, Lucas Beaufort, Koralie, RayReeg, Romain Bourven, Marie Pressmar, and more … All of them have decided to join in supporting RAWA, the oldest political/social grassroot organization of Afghan women struggling for peace, freedom, democracy and women's rights in Afghanistan.
**You too, can be part of Fafi’s friends.
How? Each artist has donated an object or an artwork close to them for an exceptional raffle, where all proceeds will go towards helping RAWA’s women provide aid, medication, food and shelter to the people of Afghanistan remaining in the country.
In support of the women's revolutionary association in Afghanistan (RAWA), Joseph Mount, the founder of English band Metronomy, is committing himself to the common good.
In return for the donations made on his page metronomy.fafiandfriends.com, he will offer his favorite t-shirt to one of the donors, drawn at random on September 30, 2021
“This is a really lovely flocked size L Daft Punk T-Shirt. It was my favourite T-Shirt and I wore it all the time until they split up. I don’t want it anymore because they broke my heart and ruined everything. From now on I just wear plain T-Shirts because bands always let you down. I hope someone out there can enjoy it instead of me.
Please bid on the T-Shirt to help Fafi and her friends raise money for people that desperately need it in Afghanistan. Joe Mount, Metronomy”
How does it work? 1$ donated = 1 pixel revealed = 1 chance to win. Each artistic raffle has a 1000$ fundraising goal that should be reached for the raffle to take place — but all of them can also be exceeded until Sept 30th, on which the winners will be drawn.
By participating in one or more artistic raffles, and by exceeding the fundraising goals with us, you are giving RAWA the means to continue their grassroots actions. Thank you very much for your support!
*Editor's note: All of the participants in this initiative (committed artists and The Hope Gallery team) are doing so on a voluntary and disinterested basis to support, through their skills and donations, RAWA's volunteers in their their grassroots work in support of Afghan families.
